Dr Thomas Woolley from Oxford University presents 'Diffusion of the Dead'

This year's Christmas lecture will be delivered by Dr Thomas E. Woolley of the Wolfson Centre for Mathematical Biology, Oxford University.

Knowing how long we have before we interact with a zombie could mean the difference between life, death and zombification. Here, we apply the same mathematical models to zombies that you would use to describe flu, or measles. We use this model to derive exact and approximate interaction times and use these to develop strategies which allow the human race to survive impending doom.

As always, everyone is welcome and the event is free.
